Euro Millions Winner of 162.3 Million Euros Bought Ticket in France


Pretty big jackpot … to say the least, was won by a ticket holder who bought his ticket in Calvados, France, Sept. 13.

The Euro Millions jackpot was huge: $162,256,622 (£140,822,522) and the winning numbers were 9, 28, 30, 32 and 49, along with the Lucky Star numbers 09 and 10.

The win brought a run of twelve consecutive rollovers to an end.

Although the French jackpot winner had the biggest cause to celebrate, there were also some major consolation prizes won by players who came close to matching all of the numbers drawn.

Six players won $372,269 (£246,962) each by matching the five main numbers along with one Lucky Star and another five players matched the five main numbers alone to win $148,908 (£98,785) each.

There were 87 winning tickets at the fourth tier level and each of those won $4,279 (£2,839) by matching four of the main numbers plus both Lucky Star numbers. In total more than 3.52 million EuroMillions prizes were won, and in the UK one player matched the Millionaire Raffle number VMZ049534 to win £1 million.
